“She’ll be back next season in a recurring role,” a spokesperson for ABC Studios says. “Watch for some juicy twists in her storyline.”
Ealier this week, Romijn told the New York Post that recent behind-the-scenes changes at Betty paved the way for her sorta-exit: “They made a tremendous amount of changes, especially with the writing staff. And while I know I’ll be coming back next season, with all the changes, I’m not sure they can take care of my character the way they have been. So I’ll be… back in a recurring capacity.”
The second season of the ABC comedy returns to Seven on Wednesday May 7 at 7:30pm.
